I like that bike, im gonna assume its better, but is there any way to tell teh weight, IDK if weight is a big deal, but it is to all my friends, and id like to have a lighter bike than my current Stolen Pinch (2005 I think) its like 36 lbs.

I'm guessing that bike is a little bit lighter than the executioner.

I cant find the 09 one, but someone said there stock 08 is 27.5, so is it safe to say its less weight for the 09?

Get over it. 30lbs isn't that much unless you are a weakling. Even then, hit the gym and get more muscle.

If your doing it cause your friends are, and your not sure that your going to do it alot, then buy a bike off craigslist for like $100 or something just to get you going. Chances are, you might find it too hard, and just quit all together right after you wasted $200 more on a bike.

30 lbs is not heavy at all. its better to learn on a bike with a bit of weight and upgrade to lighter parts.

Too bad and man up. Plus your price range won't get you a light and good quality bike.
